You know, you always quote this show as your favorite, and I am beginning to see why. I just listened to it again recently and the energy is remarkable. The Eyes is really beautiful, not a 90 mph version they so often did in 76 and 77.

Yes, and btw, I do realize, as Cueball pointed out, there are MANY great versions of EYES, and that DP15 is an excellent example, esp. since it's a stand-alone...so rare.

But what IS wonderful about 10/29/77 is exactly as you say--that slow, relaxed groovy pace, which then is followed by increasingly intense jamming so the whole thing comes crashing down into an amazing whole. There are lots of good '77 EYES...what annoyed me was the majority of those done in the 80's, which were so speeded-out it was like they were just trying to get thru the song as if it was "don't ease" or something.

In the 90's they returned to the relaxed pace with great results, i.e. 3/29/90, 3/31/91
